Our Story has these characters Kwh kilowatt hours of electricity Btu British Thermal units Kcf thousand cubic feet of Gas your Home combination Gas and electricity or total electric this is the plot is it wasteful to convert natural Gas into electricity no it is not a and Here a Why. It takes 10,890 Btu to produce 1 Kwh of electricity. This Kwh when used in the Home will produce 3,412 Btu. This makes it seem plausible that using natural Gas to produce electricity for the Home is about 30% efficient but that a just the beginning of the Story to provide a True ending of amp a conducted extensive tests using 310 single family Homes selected at random in the of amp a service area. Some were new others were several years old. Some were built As total electric Homes some had been converted to total electric. Combination Homes using both Gas and electricity were also included. The tests used the amount of electricity and Gas consumed during two years. This is the result but How about a clincher since most new Homes built today have Central heating and air conditioning it was a logical step to come up with Energy consumption figures for just these Homes. Energy study 203 a ssh a a i electric Central systems Gas Central systems Energy study electric heat pump both air conditioning Ano heating and air Gas furn. And Gas air this graph shows that Homes with electric Central systems used 203,000 Btu of Energy per Square foot per year while those with Gas Central systems used 224,000 Btu for the same period or 10% More raw Energy than the electric Central system. Bottom line burning natural Gas to produce electricity is an Efre fent use of our natural resources. Gas when taken through the meter into the Home and burned in Gas consuming appliances is Only 30 to 35% efficient. There Are no flues or Pilot lights on electric heating systems another efficiency increase. That a the full Story conclusion there is very Little difference in the amount of a raw Energy consumed by a total electric Home when compared to a combination fuelled Home. You should know it because the natural resources Are yours. Their Best use depends on your full understanding of immediate needs and methods Pius those of the future. Some forms of natural resources Are becoming More difficult to obtain we will always be Able to produce electricity by using other resources which Are available in abundance. This is not an Effort to increase the use of Energy in Alif form. Our goal is As yours to conserve and put to the beet use Iff our resources. For the details please ask of amp a for the free Booklet on the Complete test results. Ifs a Story that Witt you.,. From end to beginning of amp a electric service
